Ray Panek is planning the world's longest classic bicycle ride, and he's hoping to earn a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. 

If all goes as planned, the record breaking attempt will happen this July. Guinness however, has regulations and stipulations that need to be in place, in order for the ride to qualify: According to Syracuse.com:

Guinness requires that record attempts must be extensively videotaped and photographed, that all participants must be counted with either turnstiles, wristbands or a barcoded ticketing system and that two independent witnesses must give statements confirming that all the guidelines were followed.

Examples of classic Bicycles include but are not limited to: The Sears Free Spirit, Desert Cats, and vintage chopper bikes. The bikes also need to be pre-1987 in order to qualify, so if you own a number plated Huffy from '84, you're good to go!

If you'd like to participate in this bike parade, call Ray personally at: 315-313-8300. You can also reach him by email: wondertwins1@aol.com.
